The UK should remain a member of the Customs Union

LoveRichardDawkins
Can_o_worms

Brexit means Brexit and it will happen. This is not an attempt to curb the will of the people. However, the European Union is not equivalent to the single market and customs union. They are, undeniably, related but separate bodies. Therefore, considering leaving the EU only was on the ballot paper on June 23rd 2016, it is disingenuous to decide on behalf of the people that they must have also meant leaving the single market and customs union. Given that the margin of the vote was only very small...

The 10 commandments according to George Carlin

Thankfully this country was NOT founded on christianity. The 10 commandments are a perfect example. Here"s George Carlin"s take on them. Its great. Its true. The 10 commandments. Here"s my problem... Why are there ten? You don"t need ten. I think the list of commandments was deliberately and artificially inflated to get it up to ten. It's a padded list. Here"s what they did. About five thousand years ago, a bunch of reli"gious and political hustlers got together to figure out how they could c...

According to the Brookings Institute the three things poor teens need to succeed in life are number one get job number two get through high school and finally don't marry too early. Once people follow these simple rules they have only a 2% chance of being poor and a 25% chance of not making over 55,000 dollars.

32doni32nido32

For my opening statement and argument, I would like to start by introducing myself, stating some of the history of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), and by giving my first argument. My name is Trevor Drayton, I have been a lifelong scout. At the age of 16, I completed the rank of Eagle Scout and entered college through the CollegeNOW program. The BSA was founded by Robert S. S. Baden-Powell in 1910 for youth boys as a way to strengthen their moral standards and prepare them for joining the...

Black people will slowly turn into a sub-species

icebeartheawesome
IAmCara

All humans are currently Homo-Sapiens. It is my belief that black people will devolve (depending on how you look at it) into Homo-Africanis. This does not mean they will be gay Africans, but rather they will become a new species of ape. This has a lot to do with natural selection taking place in Africa, where many people are dying from lack of food. Therefore those that can survive while only eating very little will live to pass on their genes. This will make any gene that benefits survival...
